Time for a bit of action in the Ghia Forum!
Today I was finally able to realise a desire that I have had since virtually day one of owning my ghia.
I have been able to Return it to Stock height, with standard wheels, beauty rings and large logo Hub caps and best of all 560x15 whitewall cross plies (as supplied).
I have gradually been building up to it with buying the tyres just before Christmas (and the Vat Increase) then getting the original rims blasted and powder coated, then last week the centre section was painted and tyres mounted.
I was going to order a set of the new beauty rings but they were out of stock so I spent a bit of time cleaning up the original battered ones that came with the car. To be honest I am plenty chuffed. Likewise a large amount of elbow grease has been spent on the hub caps (which incidentally were on my first split bus many years ago and have been fitted on plenty of cars since) anyway if you see me at peppercorn this weekend please feel free to come and say hi. Try not to say that you preferred the car as it was!
here are a couple of pics.
First time for an age that I have been able to drive onto the ramp at the garage without planks!
It's like having a new car!
